The foreign Students come from Iran, Africa, and Japan. In view of the fact that six West Virginia colleges, in- cluding West Virginia Universi- ty, experienced a decline in enrollments, Glenville's figures are most encouraging. One factor contributing to the increase is the apparent endto the teacher surplus in central West Virginia. Many surroun- ding counties are still repor- ting vacancies, and even high Paying Wood County is having difficulty securing qualified Substitutes. But while the number of students in teacher education increased, it is also interesting to note that Business Administration is now the largest division on campus.
